The hotel is brand new, so everything is in tip top shape. Suites are decorated in modern style by design house Studio Munge, including the most lovely and colourful butterfly artwork. The LEED Gold building specs ensure that no noise will disturb your relaxation time in-suite. The rooms are more than spacious enough for two people, and adjoining rooms can be arranged for families. Brew your own illy coffee for a morning cup of espresso before heading down to the third floor for a buffet breakfast overlooking the water.

Parq Vancouver

The JW Marriott is part of the Parq Vancouver complex, the city’s newest entertainment destination. Parq Vancouver includes a casino, eight restaurants and lounges, and a stunning 30,000 square-foot rooftop park on the sixth floor. It also houses another great place to stay in Vancouver – the urban chic Autograph Collection Hotel, the DOUGLAS. This boutique hotel property gives off a more millennial hipster vibe than the JW Marriott, with rooms paneled in warm wood and beds draped in plaid blankets. This is the place to cocoon on a cool rainy Vancouver night – which, let’s be honest, happens frequently.

The eight restaurants and lounges are the offspring of James Beard Award nominees Elizabeth Blau and husband Kim Canteenwalla. Do enjoy a signature Douglas Fir Gin Cocktail aperitif at the D/6 Bar at the DOUGLAS Hotel. Don’t miss taking a peek into the secret speakeasy behind the bookcase. When the giant rooftop patio park opens in summer, this will be the city’s newest hot spot for the in-crowd and party people. The hotel’s elevator is already the city’s most Instagramable moving photo booth.

    We love the JW brand…and Marriotts in general. They never disappoint. The spa sounds wonderful and the convenience to the entertainment complex would certainly make it a convenient choice!! We will definitely keep in mind for a visit to the area!!

    • Claudia says:

      I’m dying to go back to the spa, it was so relaxing, warm and cosy. And my treatment was fabulous!

  • I loved your selfies…very creative and also shows the hotel beautifully (esp the one in your room)! I am a fan of JW as well and have used them in many cities across the world…they never disappoint 🙂

    The breakfast spread looks tempting 🙂

  • I love JW Marriotts, I love Autograph Collection hotels and I love Vancouver so this whole thing would be a win win for me! That secret speakeasy looks amazing, and even the bookcases are warm and welcoming. I think it might be time to make another trip to Canada to experience this.

  • Vanessa says:

    My name means “butterfly” so I really really love the gorgeous butterfly print in the room. That would instantly love me over. The selection of gourmet tea would be great too.

  • Anu says:

    I wish I had read this before I visited Vancouver. Yaletown is a great location with its old world charm and new age outlets. The room looks nice and the false creek view must have been spectacular.

  • Dawn says:

    JW Marriotts are the best! This one looks like a total winner – love the modern design. Will have to remember this for our next trip to Vancouver:)

  • Love this hotel and will be sure to check it out if (when) I make it out to Vancouver!

  • Ghia Lorenzo says:

    Such an amazing hotel! Seems you really had an amazing experience staying at JW Marriott. I really love the photos, it shows that the ambiance is pleasant and their facilities are excellent to pamper everyone. Thanks for sharing this post!

  • The elevator surely does an instant spot for us! How cool! It’s like inside a live house music and you look so happy! Love that smiles on your face. Marriot is known to be one of the luxuries hotels in the world and I’d also love to stay! Tho I will have to ask my partner when traveling! yaay! We’ll consider this in Vancouver! I assume Honey Salt is also a perfect dining for couples?

    • Claudia says:

      The elevator is crazy-amazing, isn’t it?! Yes, Honey Salt is a great spot for couples, my husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal together.

  • Stevo Joslin says:

    That elevator is an Insta-dream to die for! Glad the rooms come equipped with coffee makers to get properly caffeinated before hitting the breakfast buffet. Is that a giant jar of gummy worms? Tchotchke covered restaurants are my favorite kind, but the food usually matches the decor and not in a good way. Glad to hear Honey Salt has sumptuous fare on offer! Thanks for sharing!

    • Claudia says:

      My pleasure. And YES, that is a giant jar of gummy worm! Their candy bar rocks for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

  • Katja says:

    The secret speakeasy and Instagramable lift are reason enough to visit! I’ll put this on my list for the next time we visit Vancouver.

    • Claudia says:

      I loved that secret speakeasy, and the cosy feeling of that D/6 bar in general. Totally going back in summer for the patio – it’s huge! Come back and we’ll go together. 🙂

  • Ghia Lorenzo says:

    Wow! Such a very nice place to stay and pamper yourself! I really love the decorations, so pleasant in the eyes, indeed very relaxing. JW Marriot is indeed a perfect place.

  • Thanks Claudia, this is a great tip for where to stay in Vancouver. It looks comfortable, welcoming and stylish – I love the elevator and the speakeasy!

  • I love JW Marriott – one of my favorite brands in the Marriott portfolio. We’ve actually stayed here in Vancouver too, and I agree that it’s a fabulous property. I didn’t take in the spa though, so will definitely have to spend some time on the 17th floor on my next trip. Isn’t the elevator the best! 😀
